Development of training material for NPP Training Points located at NPP sites for On the Job Training (OJT) with the methodology used to implement the material for the Training Centres (refer to TACIS 1.8 and TACIS 4.1).

The training topics address only the items dedicated to the NPP Training Points and are not a duplication with those developed for the Training Centres. The share of work between Training Centres and Training Points will be established in project R2.03/95.
In addition, some training material is to be prepared specifically for the multifunctional simulator of VVER 230/213.


The training material developed during the project was about twice as much as defined in the Terms of Reference (TOR). The Beneficiary considers the results as good, exceeding clearly the normal TACIS standard.

The project succeeded especially in the methodology transfer that the local experts at Kalinin Training Point (KTP) are today in the position to apply the methods for new sectors in the Kalinin NPP operation. Work on developing maintenance charts and procedures, beyond the project’s tasks, based on the project results has been started already at the final phase of this project. The project objectives can be considered as achieved. Due to the successful methodology transfer, the end user, KTP, is today in the position to continue the development of the OJT courses for KNPP purposes.

A general preparedness for the dissemination of the project results for other users was also achieved. In that respect Novovoronezh Training Centre experts with their expertise gained from this project. Project was specially tailored for the project partner’s needs. In this phase it was planned to transfer the OJT methodology to Russia and test its applicability at the reference site Kalinin. Based on the statements of the KTP experts involved in the project, the Beneficiary received more than actually expected. The Beneficiary found already new possibilities for applying the methodology. Especially in the development of the plant maintenance procedures the methodology is expected to bring real improvements.

Work on that has already been started at the final project phase. Based on the achievements, the appropriateness of the project can be considered as good.
